by security personnel lou: campaigning in a rally in richmond today governor romney seized on the vice president's remarks promising that room the ryan administration would do better. >> we need to understand exactly what happened. we have our rights and that is what's going on. lou: taking all of this up with former ambassador john bolton who says, his comments are an admission of incompetence and the obama administration, either state or the white house. so, the head of the largest tire share business in the wod tells employees there will be fewer jobs and less subsidy if president obama is reelected. and what is behind the biden of last. psychoanalyzing this marks, flintridge, and behavior of the evening. or first guest says biden's blunder is an admission of incompetence and says it is a risky move leaving secretary of state hillary clinton out on he lam. joining us to a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, fox is contributor john bolton. ambassador, let's go first to the idea that when jay carney was trying to create some buffer, some comfort cause some zone by saying th
showdown only days away. new poll numbers show governor romney with a post-debate bump. paul ryan getting ready for the faceoff against joe biden in the next big debate. i'm bill hemmer here. martha has the day off. >> i'm patti ann browne in for mart maing that -- martha maccallum. a veteran political strategist says joe biden will be going for the throat. >> they will be pouring cola down his throat. they will react. because they will have a couple days of bad polling. ryan has very impressive but hasn't done this before. biden who is high-wire act in attack mode which is not always his normal place. bill: joe cola. fox news contributor, good morning to you. >> good morning, bill. bill: you believe this is huge opportunity for romney-ryan, why? >> it is. romney set the stage for the dominant victory over the president in the first presidential debate. that changed the story of the whole campaign. if you have ryan defeating the vice president joe biden it would really create a story of obama-biden on the ropes. and, romney-ryan on the move. bill: the way mike murphy explains it, republic
not going after their rights? the national review was told, quote, governor romney would, of course, support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life. this is the second time this year the campaign corrected their candidate on abortion. back in august, romney said abortion should be legal in several situations, including when the health of the mother is in danger. >> now, i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. >> but then his campaign walked it back, saying, quote, he doesn't support an exception to protect the health of a pregnant woman. in all this that we're seeing, is it making your head spin? well, it should. because all year mitt romney has been clearly, severely anti-choice. >> do i believe the supreme court should overturn roe v. wade? >> now romney is contradicting that because with weeks to go he badly needs the women vote. he's down 22 points in ohio, a must-win state for him. so romney decided he must run from his party's extreme view on abortion and there's so much to run from. gop legislature
to be getting tight other after governor romney's strong performance in last week's presidential debate a new "gallup poll" taken in the first three days after the faceoff, shows the two contenders locked into a dead-heat, 47% each. what does governor romney's team need to do to keep up the momentum? erin mcpike, national political reporter for "real clear politics.". erin, i know a lot of republicans are saying the momentum has swung governor romney's way. it is a sprint to the finish line. you seem to be a little more cautious about that. why? >> i am because i'm looking at "real clear politics" polling averages of all the battleground states and the president is still ahead in big states he needs to win like wisconsin and ohio. he also still winning in new hampshire and nevada. and when you add those states to the electoral college map, it shows still that it's a tough way for mitt romney to go. he has got to win more than just say virginia and florida if he can win those now. jon: how many of those polls that "real clear politics" averages, how many have been taken post-debate, do you kno
a phone call from the who is and said look, we didn't go after governor romney as much and so you have got to turn up the heat. >> i think both men will be very prepared. >> biden says he's ready. >> all debates are tough. but i'm looking forward to it. i really am. >> foreign and domestic policy issues will be in play thursday night. it's the only vice-presidential debate before the november 6 election. i'm christina mugler reporting. >> this thursday's vice-presidential debate may actually end up being the most watched v.p. showdown to date. >> that's due in large part to presidential debate that still has many people talking and we're joined by political deputy white house edward isaac dovar. thank you for being with us. how damaging was president obama's performance during the debate on wednesday is this >> a lot of people have been very concerned about it on the democratic side. and very excited about it on the republican side. because it really did change the tone of where things were for the past few weeks. the president was moving u
letting the audience forget who his real target was. >> governor romney said -- >> governor romney was asked -- >> governor romney says -- >> governor romney -- >> in the course of the debate, biden mentioned the president by name 22 times and ryan only 14 times. look at this exchange. >> he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus money? >> sure, he did. >> we applied for constituents applying for grants. >> i love this. this is such a bad program that he writes me a program saying the reason we need stimulus, it will create growth and jobs. his words. >> though largely avoided being drawn into debates about the record, his views and records are different from romney and you could see he had difficulty squaring their policies on social security. ryan voted for a privatization bill in the past and there was this exchange on the abortion. >> he's argued that in the case of rape or incest it was still -- it would be a crime to engage in having an abortion. >> if you believe that life begins at conception, that doesn't change the definition of life. that's a principle. the policy of a romn
of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. wh exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about where you would draw the line precisely so as to avoid being trapped by it. but the other point to make is that president obama has had several years. during those years the options that he took or the choices that he took narrowed the options that he has today so one of the reasons why governor romney's approach to iran looked similar in some respects to president obama's is because governor roney would have done things very differentlywo or the years ago. governor romney maids a critique in june
? >> reporter: that's right, may be a while before we see governor romney, it is lightning country in florida and the campaign's arrival is delayed because of fear that it might be a threatening storm. a big crowd here and big money raised by mitt romney since the debate. his debate performance clearly caught the attention of both republicans, who were worried about the trajectory of his campaign and new voters and the campaign is reporting since the debate performance they've raked in more than $12 million, and, just today, the romney campaign undertaking a national teleconference, and phone banking exercise, made another 2 million contacts with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the
spending and then when it comes to their actual programs, they don't want it cut. governor romney recently suggested if we went off the fiscal cliff and have the spending cuts in defense, that it would kill jobs in virginia. >> but that's where you need leadership from the top. and successful governors do two things well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures and they also have a strategy or a blueprint for economic growth in their state for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership in the white house. >> no president has had reorganization authority since ronald reagan lost in the 1980's, when it expired. i think there needs to come back. i would put back some type of entitlement authority that was lost after the nixon era. the subcommittees in congress are not very good managers of certain things. so there has to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and structure of the government we have in place. this government functions on a 19th century organization model despite the availability of 21st centu
that governor romney has that would in their estimation, lead to a $5 trillion deficit, they are citing outside besides for that number. and romney says it will be compensated for by loopholes. how he will justify the cuts? where will those revenue sources be made up? >> even stephanie cutter admitted it is not a $5 trillion tax cut. we have a 20% tax cut across the board, no matter what income level you fall into. but for those people at the higher levels of income, what governor rom no is proposing is closing loopholes and dedux for those individuals that will ultimately make the entire budget revenue neutral. >> shannon: when will we find out what they are? >> when a budget is put together, when the budget committee puts forward a budget, they don't put forward a budget with every loophole and deduction and every single -- they have a couple of numbers, they say here's the top number, here's the bottom number. you go to the ways & means committee and i sit down with a burch of people and i figure out how to get a tax cut across the board and close the loopholes so the people at the higher le
of substance. i would really like to ask governor romney and his advisers what he would do differently. and then the campaign ad reminded voters of the hapless response that in the attacks that killed chris stevens. >> romney's response showed a lack of presidential character and republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now think of what mitt romney might do as president. >> eliot: for more on mitt romney's assault on foreign policy record and focus in the middle east i'm joined by james traub who writes regular column "terms of engagement" for foreign policy.com and jon soltz, an iraq war veteran and co-founder and chairman of vote vets.org . is there anything tangible to bitebite into. >> it is adder. the bellicose language is the classic bellicose language, democrats are soft. democrats are weak. democrats are not resolute. but in this speech they've gotten closer to president obama than they were before. in the case of iran, which is iwhich has always been romney's big issue, he didn't say we sho
one. >> hope is not a strategy. >> sean: governor mitt romney's impressive performance last week will go down as the most decisive victory in history and americans must agree, because according to a brand-new gallup poll by a record-breaking 52-point margin, 72% of voters think romney did a much better job than president barack obama. anointed one stumbling and bumbling in denver is costing him in the polls, nationally and in battleground states. the latest gallup survey, the governor is now tied with the president among registered voters, a five-point swing in romney's favor in the days immediately following the debate. by the way, it's a seven-day rolling average, and three more days after the debate have yet to be counted. according to the newly-released pew research center poll, romney leads among likely voters -- get this -- 49% to 45%. according to the brand-new george washington politico poll, voter enthusiasm has shifted dramatically in romney's in favor. on top of that, the polls show romney is leading among independent voters by a staggering 16%. according to fox news p
-win state of florida. governor romney now leads 49, 47, however that's a dead heat when the factor in the march i didn't know of error. in the vital state of ohio mitt romney has surged 49% to mr. romney's 50. a virtual dead heat there as well. a few days ago had the president up big in ohio. in crucial virginia romney leads 49, 48, another tie in the margin of error. with the country still talking about mitt romney's victory the democratic party has decided to go into full attack mode. the strategy seems to be very simple. call mitt romney a liar. >> plenty of people have pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean if he was talking -- if he was speaking last night, he was lying. >> look, mitt romney had a good night but, you know, even, you know, a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. one good night is not going to erase a year of mitt romney's extreme positions. >> bill: that was pretty vicious, was it not? does the dnc really believe that kind of rhetoric will help the president? does it believe independent voters respond positively to that? i don
hardest talk. >>> governor romney's proposal that he's been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of 2 trillion for our military. and essaying that he is going to pay for it by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem is that he has been asked over 100 times how you would close those deductions and loopholes, and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> i'm not look for a $5 trillion a tax cut. what i have said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. middle-income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. i'll call it the economy tax. it's been crushing. >> question. why did president obama seem thrown off balance? did he underestimate governor romney, pat buchanan? >> he certainly d. governor romney performed better on substance than any candidate in any presidential debate in history. reagan would have beaten him in style in 1980 but on substance i've never seen anybody better prepared than governor romney. he was on of fence. the real question, why did barack obama, the president, do s
in the first presidential debate when governor romney said this -- >> what would i cut from spending? obamacare is on the list. i use that term with all respect. i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i love pbs and big bird, and i actually like you, too. lou: president obama not able to resist since then referring to big bird yesterday and today, and here's what he said. >> for all of you moms and kids out there, don' worry, somebody's finally getting tough on big bird. [cheers and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers
-- >> i'm sorry. yeah? what's up? >> governor romney just said he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no. you two go ahead. >> will joe biden have to prove he's tougher? >> we think he'll come at me like a can bonn ball. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell. mitt romney is trying to turn the momentum from his debate performance into a political tidal wave. stinging to swing state spots including today's foreign policy speech containing attacks on the president's record. during the daily fix, chris. this was mitt romney going after president obama saying he's leading from behind. i just got off a conference call the obama team put on with madeleine albright. he barely mentioned china and his mention of russia they say russia is not the greatest foreign policy challenge. when it comes to the middle east he senses vulnerability in the wake of benghazi. >> i think it's an attempt for romney to push the reset button. they put out a statement, a political statement before we knew about the death of ambassador chris stef ens that they could have handled it better but it doesn't me
and my luggage got there. they almost held it. big momentum on governor romney's side. the shifting performance, the terrific performance in the first presidential debate. we have the details ahead. the polls show that the race if the white house is getting a little tighter in several swing states. one swing state is of great importance and it has not changed. we will break down the new numbers. a month after the attack in libya that killed four americans, including our u.s. ambassador, a masked gunman was murdered, has murdered a security official who worked for the u.s. embassy in yemen. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. >> first from fox at 3:00 in kentucky, we are live waiting for the debate. it and high 60's, the fall leaves are out and the drive from here to lexington, it is the "thrill in the villa," they made that up. our slogan people are better, a showdown between the current v.p. and the man would would like to take his job, congressman paul ryan. the stakes are higher than usual coming after the poll that show an increasingly close race much vice
are waiting for governor romney hold a town meeting. joining us will be new jersey governor chris christie. the event is set to kick off in about 35 minutes. in the meantime from the president back in the white house today, following a visit to ohio yesterday, the latest policy shows the race in the buckeye state dramatically tightening. president obama is now being governor romney by less than one percentage point. ohio is one of a handful of states that are considered battleground, 18 electoral votes come a long way to the 270. john roberts is why but we did see everything. set the scene for us. >> yes, it started off in the fellas basement, and now the governor here in ohio during a swing through the buckeye state talking about jobs and energy, trying to fully articulate campaign against the president and now making it a campaign about voting for governor romney here he is less meaning in cuyahoga falls, ohio. >> i have been watching some of the footage of president obama's rally, they have been chanting four more years. i think that right chance ought to be four more weeks for them. [c
when we continue. , with governor romney delivered a major foreign policy speech earlier today at the virginia military institute. he highlighted areas of contrast with president obama. >> we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. the greater tragedy of it all is that we're missing an historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east. >> rose: he also argued syrian rebels should be armed and addressed relations with israel. >> for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions not just words that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. i'll reaffirm our historic ties to israel and our abiding commitment to its security. the world must never see any daylight between our two nations. >> rose: the governor sought to capitalize on his debate performance. the next two debates will add
out of the sky. where are we going does back to libya. thank you, sir. >> governor romney is sending a second day in must-win ohio and new word that the strategy may be starting to work in that state. we will have the latest polling numbers. this is "studio b." i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

for myself and my .amily per i feel like governor romney has the most hope for me at this point to make things better and make it so that eventually i can return to where my family is and hope for a better future for my 10-year-old daughter. >> thank you very much for calling from wyoming. a reminder, all of this is posted on our web site, c- span.org. this is one exchange between congressman paul ryan and the vice president. >> mitt romney is a car guy. they keep misquoting him. let me tell you about the mitt romney i know. this is a guy who i was talking to a family. two of them were paralyzed. they went to the same church. mitt asked if he could come over on christmas. he brought his boys and his wife and gifts. i know you are struggling, do not worry about college, i will pay for it. mitt romney does not tell these stories. it was not the cash, he gave his time, and he has consistently. this is a man who gave 30% of the two of us combined. he is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in the country. the vice president knows that sometimes the words do not come out of your mout
performance. mitt romney, being a former governor of massachusetts, is very unpopular in the state. most polls have showed him lagging obama by a huge margin. this poll shows up he has made some ground -- this poll shows he has made up some ground against obama. we can expect this race to be one of the closest in the country. host: we will talk about the senate race later with you in the program. again, our coverage tonight of the senate debate, 7:00 p.m. eastern time. senator scott brown, republican, faces off with elizabeth warren, the democratic challenger, at 7:00 p.m. eastern time, 4:00 p.m. if you are on the west coast. gopac, campaign 2012. let's begin with ohio. "the washington post," "obama and romney running hard in ohio." why ohio? caller: a republican has never won the white house without winning ohio. things never change. whenever a republican is our nominee for president, we have to win or ohio. i think governor romney is going to win ohio this year. host: both of them have been there numerous times to the president just 15 times this year, 30 times since he has taken office. tel
under pressure. president obama admits that his performance was lamentable. >> governor romney had a good night and i had a bad night. it is not the first time i have had a bad night. >> obama with his failure to hit back by politeness and seemed overwhelmed by his strong performance. it is a tight race. >> a lot of pressure to do better than barack obama. >> some are demoralized and even panicking. they say the mood has changed. >> people realize this is not in the bag and before the day, they were saying he was such a small tumbler and bumbler that there was no way he can win. people see him as a credible candidate in this is going to be a close election. >> that is reflected in the polls. he makes a stunning turnaround. the average puts him ahead for the first time in this contest. >> president obama has to figure out how to regain it and do something different. >> i want to stop the subsidy to pbs. dodge and they tried the fight back with the promise to cut public tv. >> one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. >> a rather desperate move. hong >> taking off and our
. on iraq, the president has said he would end the war. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have left 30,000 troops there. with regard to afghanistan, he said he will end the war in 2014. governor romney said we should not set a date. when it came to osama bin laden, the president, the first day in office, i was sitting with them in the oval office and he called in the cia, my highest priority is to get bin laden. prior to the election, governor romney was asked the question about how we would proceed. he did not understand it was more about taking a murderer off the battlefield. it was about restoring america's heart. if you do harm to america, we will track you to the gates of hell. the president of the united states has led with a steady hand and a clear vision. governor romney, the opposite. the last thing we need now is another war. >> we mourn the loss of these four americans who were murdered. you take a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they said the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest in the youtube video. it took the
. the president arrived there late today, and he went right after governor romney. >> i am not going to have us go back to another round of top-down economics, but that's what my opponent is offering. the centerpiece of governor romney's economic plan is a new $5 trillion tax cuts that favors the wealthiest americans, but most of the economists who have crunched the numbers said that paying for governor romney's tax plan -- one or the other. pick your poison. last week when we were on stage together. governor romney just pretended it didn't exist. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. pay no attention for that tax cut under the carpet behind the curtain. >>> romney's pretending his tax cut plan doesn't exist, but the president won't let him get away with it. he also won't let him get away with hitting the middle class to protect his own tax rate. >> governor romney said it's fair he pays a lower tax rate than a teacher or autoworker who makes $50,000. he is wrong. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for own
governor romney takes some responsibility. >> pile up the dynamite and light the fuse. >> a fierce and loyal attack dog for president obama. >> make no mistake about that. >> the vice president is passionate. >> when you're passionate and you're right, you've got to talk. >> joe biden aets performance dominated the stage last night. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> as he went on offense against paul ryan. >> joe was definitely joe. >> it's about time they take some responsibility here. >> i'm not into man fights. >> mr. ryan said last night to governor romney was a car guy. well, if they had an elevator stack i guess he was. >> today the campaigning continues the post debate campaigning has already kicked into high gear. >> we're going to level the playing field. it's time to acknowledge what got us into this trouble in the first place. >> the vice president defends the status quo. >> that's a bunch of ma larky. the. >> paul ryan care about each and every american. >> stop caring about how you care about people. show me something. >> the table is now reset. >> with the v.p. debate no
from governor romney today. one that will include terrorist attacks to benghazi. some call administration cover up of security lapses there. he will address what he believes is a general lapse in leadership islamic extremism to flourish and thrive as a regional and international threat. ainsley, heather, back to you. >>> a lot of conservatives, too, asking to get the foreign policy speech later today. speaking of the 2011 election see who is talking this morning. we are hearing from the campaign senior advisors. david axle rod and dave gillespie. in axle rod obama senior advisor slams romney calling his debate performance a poerformance. >> the president planned on having an honest discussion of where we go as a country and romney shows up to deliver a performance. he delivered a performance. it was completely unrooted in the positions he has taken before. he spent 90 minutes undoing two years of campaigning on the stage. >> are you saying governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yes he was dishonest. when he said he didn't propose 5 million in tax cuts he was dishonest. h
said he would end the war. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have-- he ended it. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have left 30,000 troops there. with regard to afghanistan he said he will end the war in 2014. governor romney said we should not set a date, number one. and number two, with regard to 2014, it depends. when it came to osama bin laden, the president, the first day in office, i was sitting with him in the oval office. he called in the cia and signed an order saying my highest priority is to get bin laden. prior to the election, prior to the being sworn in governor romney was asked a question about how he would proceed. he said i wouldn't move heaven and earth to get bin laden. he didn't understand it was about more than getting a murderer off the battlefield but about restoring america's heart and letting terrorists around the world know if you do harm to america, we will track you to the gates of hell if need be. and lastly, the president of the united states has lead with a steady hand and clear vision. governor romney, the o
